Description I.L.A. is a slope stability analysis program that also incorporates features for retaining system designing. The slope analysis and design can be performed using the Sarma method, whose numerical stability increases the reliability of the calculations. The classic Bishop, Jambu, Morgenstern & Price and Bell methods are also available. The failure surfaces can either be defined as circular or planar surface families or even individually, as polygonal surfaces, and therefore have any shape whatsoever. The analysis can be carried out under drained or undrained conditions, also considering water pressures, surcharges, and seismicity (pseudostatic analysis). For the design of retaining systems other programs only allow the determination of the safety factor that can be obtained when a given force is applied to the slope. This program uses instead inverse formulae which, given the geotechnical parameters and a required safety factor, determine the reaction force that the retaining system should offer to obtain such a safety factor. The program automatically extends the retaining system analysis to all the failure surfaces, offering a complete and immediate result without manual iterations of the calculation. In the case in which the reaction forces result in higher than the allowable loads, the safety factor that corresponds to the actually obtainable reaction force is calculated. The program can also be used for reinforced slope analysis. Multilingual (Italian, English, French and Spanish). LAN supported. A full working demo version is available on the WWW.
